I like the guy. I really do. But with 1 year left, it'd be a stupid move to buy him out. This is a team that has the financial might to leverage a trade out of a buyout. There's also potential to actually need these buyouts next season if a few guys don't pick up their play next season. Guys with more than a year remaining...
If we could mutually agree to release Komisarek that'd be great, but these buyouts are assets and you only get two of them. I really don't bear any ill will on the guy, but come on, his contract was over $17 000 000 and he was mediocre for us at the best of times. I'm not gonna feel sorry for him if he has to endure another year of collecting millions more for doing nothing before he can have his pick of the teams that will take him.
Seriously people, if you maintained the same lifestlye you have now, you could probably retire off what he's going to make for doing nothing this year. nothing. Nice guy, but he's being WELL compensated for waiting a year.
